I think once Amazon puts up something for foreign shipping, independents probably buy them out if it is a relatively popular item, so that they can monopolise it through their own listings.
If Amazon charges retail prices and has FREE shipping within America, it gives a lot of room for profit to the independents.

The Year of the Snake Omega Supreme is now in stock, and is apparently shipping... but the Optimus doesn't appear to have arrived yet, so they are shipping them separately.

The second wave of Rescue Bots Series 2 Robots are now available for $15 each - Boulder and Blades... the four from the first wave are currently discounted to $12 each.

It doesn't look like anything else has been added to the items available to non-Americans though since I last posted up items.

My YotS Omega arrived yesterday, and is very impressive in person? I hope Amazon continue this trend of releasing exclusives

My YOTS Optimus shipped a couple of days ago. To bad the idiots at the USPS are taking it in the wrong direction. It started at Amazon's facility in Arizona and is now in New Jersey.

Hey USPS Australia is South-West of America not East!!!

I should have paid for DHL.

Damn... after months of minimal new stuff added to the "International" registry (items we can buy), I ended up caving and bought several items from BBTS and HK that Amazon are now stocking for a lot less.
(then again, other items aren't much cheaper, as Amazon seems to be charging about 20% on top of US RRP... probably to cover their cheap/free shipping offers)

Some of the more noteworthy items (hope none of them have the same problem as kaiden had with Smokescreen)...

GEN LGD Eject & Ramhorn $12
GEN LGD Rewind & Sunder $12

BH DLX Starscream
$16.25 (on sale from $17)
BH DLX Bulkhead $16 (on sale from $17)
BH DLX Smokescreen $17
BH DLX Ripclaw $16.70 (on sale from $17)
BH VOY Optimus $25
BH VOY Predaking $25
BH CMDR Optimus $11
BH CMDR Bulkhead $11
BH CMDR Trailcutter $11
BH Vehicle Breakdown/Apex Armor $22
BH Vehicle Smokescreen/Sky Claw $20.50 (on sale from $22)

BotShot Launcher Bbee $11
BotShot Launcher Optimus $10 (on sale from $11)
BS 3-pack (Bbee, Shock, Skyquake) $14 (on sale from $15)
BS 3-pack (Cliff, Brawl, Dirtboss) $15
BS 5-pack Stunticons $22
BS 5-pack Autobot Polar Assault $22
BS 5-pack Aerialbots $22
BS 5-pack Decepticon Fire Assault $22
BS Dragon Track set $22

Both Platinum Edition figures are still in stock as well.


To see what other items should be available to us, click on the "from Transformers" link under any of their name/titles, and then on the left hand column of filter options, click on the "Amazonglobal eligible".
Also, make sure on the individual items page, it says near the top that they are "ships from and sold by Amazon.com", or else you will get an error.
(Ignore where it says free shipping on orders over a certain amount, as that only applies to US orders)

Yeah I'm doing some testing too and getting weird shipping options too, if I add one deluxe Starscream to my cart it adds about $20 but if I add 1 Cyberverse vehicle playset it only adds about $3?

Yeah the kreon bits are back in stock!

Starnge, the Stunticon 5 pack also added an extra $20 to the postage. Wow.

Maybe still has a few kinks in the system?
